(NECN: Lauren Collins, Nashua, NH) - Likely GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is in New Hampshire to meet with business owners.

Reporters caught up with Romney to ask him what he thought about the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.

"We will all remember where we were when Osama bin Laden was finally killed," says Romney.

"This is a man who deserved to be brought to justice," says Romney. "The bad guy took one in the eye."

Romney is the closest to a front-runner in a wide-open Republican presidential field. He formally announced his campaign exploratory committee last month.

"We got the bad guy. The nation celebrates that. It is not a Republican or Democrat thing. It's an American thing," says Romney.
